Yep, same here. However, I was able to catch it before breaking things 
by using dselect. Using dselect, it gave me a list of dependency 
problems *prior* to doing anything about it. A CTRL-C to break out of 
dselect without commiting any changes, and everything is still there.

Instead, let this be another example that "unstable" is, in fact, 
unstable! Sometimes, the maintainers don't hit everything on the 
up-beat and it takes some cycles to get it worked out.

On the other hand, checking library dependencies prior to such a 
change would be nice. Cups and KDE are a nice combination, I'm sorry 
that Debian unstable is the only Linux distribution right now that 
cannot handle both. I thought the nightly "whole system build" thing 
would avoid problems like this, since everything has to be built with 
the same libraries as are then packaged?

Next on the hit parade, why does cups have everything for my 
HP-PSC2210, and the USB device viewer in KDE Control Panel sees and 
recognizes the printer, yet cups doesn't see that any printer is 
connected at all?
